nationalization of the entire universe of american medicine, one-sixth of the economy. it makes you wonder if these guys even read their own stuff. the problem here is, number one, the capacity is quite low. 50,000 is a very small number. amazon handles over a million an hour. here if you go to 50,000, you end up like peter doocy where you have to wait five hours until you get in a queue, a lovely british word, meaning in an endless wait until the website is ready for you. second is security. all the experts who were before congress a couple of weeks ago have said it is utterly insecure and they wouldn't use it in the absence of security. all kinds of information is now vulnerable. and the third is what you mentioned, the back ending. which means all these people are shoving information into a system which is either reaching the insurers incorrectly, in which case there are going to be huge complications. it could take eons to undo the bad information or is not reaching the insurers at all. in which case somebody will show up january 1st thinking he has insurance who doesn't and we'

. economy. the job creation news sent stocks soaring today, a rare sign. the dow added 199. the s&p 500 gained 20. the nasdaq finished ahead 29. for the week, the dow lost 0.4 of a percentage of a point. to break down the jobs report for us is melissa francis in new york. she's the most of "money with melissa francis" on the fox business network. the jobs number better than expected. still not robust, but pretty good? >> absolutely. it was better than expected. most economists were looking for less than 200,000 jobs, 203,000 is what came through. 7% unemployment. that is the 60th straight month we have seen employment over 7%. if you look at the average amount of money earned per hour, the number of hours worked per week, those ticked up slightly. and the participation rate is so important. last month it was at a 35-year low. it has ticked up, but just slightly. 63% of people out there consider themselves part of the workforce, either working or even looking for a job. that means that the rest of the population has given up and they don't want to work at all. so not a great number.

the other stuff that has been weighing on the economy, that he's been complaining about. that should be off the table for sometime. so they'll see that as a positive. but on the negative sign of this -- side of this, when you ask about his juice, he taking republican senators out to deal, saying he wanted to get a budget, one of his legacy items, and he is left with a mini bar at best. >> and is there hope at all of taking this big bargain before he leaves office or are we looking at this small bite of the apple that takes it really to the end of his term? >> there is -- they are hopeful they could do more here at the white house but it seems highly unlikely that he will get anything bigger than the bite-size deals at this point. republicans are waiting for this 2014 mid-term elections and they won't give this president too much in terms of a bigger budget deal. unlikely to give him immigration reform and any other major legacy items so insteader dealing with the smaller deals, as you say, but also still implementing health care reform which is a bear for him and is likely to continu
